One of our party had to wait a considerable time for her starter, when it did arrive the bread offered with the pate was not toasted, the waitress said... More

Had a get together with twelve of our neighbours and we were a little concerned about the booking because of the numbers and it being a busy Sunday lunch time. We need not have feared. Our table was ready on arrival,the service was first class and everyone agreed the meals either from the carvery or off the menu were excellent... More

Recently refurbished so thought we would give it a try. We arrived at about 4.30 and were fortunate enough to get a table for 2 in a quiet corner. The waitresses were very pleasant and helpful. We were seated for about 5 mins when we were told we could go to the carvery to be served. Good choice of meats... More
